What I want prospective students to know about Purchase: How open and inviting of a community we have! The campus is also full of some of the most creative people you’ll meet.

The reason I became an Ambassador: To let perspective students know how unique our campus is and to be a friendly face around campus.

My favorite spot on campus: The trails around campus

Why I chose Purchase:  I chose Purchase because of the atmosphere of acceptance, the proximity to New York City and the Neuberger Museum.

My hobbies and interests: Painting, reading, hiking and exploring new places!

Future plans after Purchase: Grad School

What “Think Wide Open” means to me: “Think Wide Open” means approaching every situation with empathy and compassion, listening to others and constantly challenging your own ideas on how the world should work.
